Nokia has released a beta version of the OS2008 for the Nokia N800, mainly targeted to developers working on maemo 4.0 Chinook. Porting and developing applications for Chinook was already possible with the beta and final releases of the maemo SDK. This image allow developers to fine tune testing and performance on their Nokia N800 and get software virtually ready for the new Nokia N810 as well.

The OS2008 final release for the N800 is expected to come on mid December. It will include several improvements based on N800 specific testing and the earliest feedback received from the usage of the N810 in real circumstances.

A known issue relevant to Navicore N800 Navikit users: the Navikit service is not enabled in this beta. The final release will include the functionality to upgrade the service to OS2008.
